Samantha Snodgrass Named Horizon League Softball Player of the Week
Indianapolis, Ind. -- Youngstown State sophomore third baseman Samantha Snodgrass has been named the Horizon League Softball Player of the Week for the week of April 16-22, the league announced on Monday.
This is the first weekly award honor of Snodgrass career.
Snodgrass led Youngstown State (26-13-1, 10-8 Horizon) to a 5-1 week as the Penguins swept Detroit before taking two of three games from visiting Wright State.
Recording a .375 batting average, Snodgrass posted a .938 slugging percentage, clubbing two home runs and driving in 11 on the week.
The sophomore's first homer of the week was a three-run shot that helped lead to a 9-0 victory.
In a key series win over Wright State, Snodgrass batted .500 (3-for-6), finished with seven RBIs, including a three-run homer in the series opener and a four-RBI effort in the rubber game of the series.
This is also the sixth time this season a Youngstown State player has won the award. Snodgrass joins junior Vicky Rumph (Feb. 12) and senior Haley Thomas (March 20 and March 26) as player-of-the-week honorees. Sophomore Casey Crozier (Feb. 12 and March 20) was twice selected as the league's pitcher of the week.
The Guins visit Toledo, Tuesday, April 24, in a doubleheader at 3 p.m. before hosting UIC in a three-game Horizon League series, April 28-29.
